... I had the feeling something was lodged in my nasopharynx for about a week, but prior to that, I had the thick mucous plugs that I just couldn't seem to either spit up or swallow--for probably a year.
I tried everything, neti pot, antihistamines, throat lozenges, gargling--then came the medications--albuterol inhaler (for asthma like problem that developed), dulera... (6 replies)

... So my CT scan showed a completely opacified left maxillary sinus & some opacification of other parts of the sinuses. But the nasopharynx was completely open, no problems.
I went for a septoplasty & FESS just because it was the only option available, I was hoping it would open up the sinuses and allow them to drain better. I thought the sinusitis might somehow be the source... (6 replies)
... I have very similar symptoms I've battled for 5 years. I started having what I believe to be sinus pressure five years ago when we moved from California to Denver. The pressure is relentless and daily. It used to go away when I would go back to sea level but doesn't now. I snort constantly and sometimes I am able to get phlemgn to come up but 80% of the time not. I have sinus... (6 replies)

... This post is gonna be loooooong. Sorry about this.
I have had a similar sensation in the nasopharynx area for at least 15 years now, minus the snorting issue (although I think it's the same problem - I just keep trying to swallow instead of snorting). I'm 29 now. I've had my tonsils and adenoids removed. It isn't mucus or postnasal drip, I don't feel like there's any mucus... (6 replies)
... I have had exactly this problem since my early teens. I get a solid lump of mucous in/around Hiatus Semilunaris. It builds up every day, until it gets so unbearable. Over the years Ive been through all the ENT / Doctor Roundabout, even had Septoplasti, but nothing worked. I even 'saved' up the buildup and cleared and produced in the doctors presence, and for some reason he got... (15 replies)
... Hey there,
this issue has been plaguing me for the last several months. I'm constantly having to hock spit, and it seems to be somehow correlated to how runny or stuffy my nose is. This started back when my family just had a span where they had a 70 degree heater on for 2 straight weeks, and having experienced a daily nosebleed during those weeks, I have a feeling that's...

... Both my husband and I suffer with this condition and we have had NO colds.
I myself am constantly hacking/clearing my throat and often bring up clear Phlegm. I feel it is caused by Post-Nasal-Drip and also climatic conditions.
I find it worse in the winter months going outside from central-heated home to damp/cold conditions.
I don't know of a cure, wish I did.

... Wow, I cannot believe I've found other people who are experiencing this, I'm almost in tears. When I was 15, I went on vacation to England with my mother and sister. I got a cold that lasted awhile, and that was when I first experienced this sensation of something above my mouth but behind my nose, but it just never went away. I went to a number of specialists, including... (15 replies)
... I just started with this snorting problem. I can't take it anymore and cannot imagine living with it for years. It is very embarrassing having this problem while working.

I do have acid... (15 replies)

... I have had this exact problem for over 3 years now and, believe me, I feel your pain. I have also been to several ENT's, each of which put a camera up my nose and told me that there is nothing there and that I just need to stop snorting. If only they had this problem, then they would know that I can't just stop, because it feels like I am drowning in my own mucus! Anyway, I... (15 replies)
